that voters like barack obama. swing state voters like barack obama. they may have questions about the economy, but it really is turning out to be a surprise election because i think that the base and more than the base, is anxious to turn out for barack obama. >> there is sort of a hidden truth beneath this conspiracy talk and that is that most polls are prediction about who will turn out. and a lot of the models predict that obama coalition that turned out last time that tilted in some ways more democratic and in some ways more young, will turn out again. that's based on data itself and it interesting a lot of independent pollsters have come to that conclusion. is there any point hidden in here or just really a bankrupt talking point? >> it's not a prediction. they're asking people are you going to vote and they're saying yes. are you a republican or democrat, that shifts around based on how people are feeling and vote for. but i think one of the things you're seeing in these polls and this story about polling is what you guys said before about having your own facts. the idea here, that repu

romney and obama. it is too early to do that. voters are not fully engaged, particularly the independents and marginal supporters. a last people who are saying they will vote if president obama right now, those marginal democrats who are nowhere near as excitessed as they were in 2008, by the time we get closer to the election a lot of those folks will be screened out in the screening models that pollsters use. this is likely to tighten up as we get down to the people who are actually going to show up on election day, not the people who are telling us they will five weeks out. >>neil: good point all, thank you, andy. >> what is it going to take for mitt romney to be it in the former c.e.o. of mcdonald's knows. >> mitt romney better wake up to the fact he better start bringing us down to the level where a coal miner in ohio gets it, a factory worker in cleveland gets it and a farmer in iowa gets it. if he doesn't, he will lose this election. >>neil: if you think that is tough love, wait until you hear the rest of that on mitt romney and president obama. that is tonight at 8:00 p.m. on fox
, undecided voters is that we don't look at the people who say they're for president obama or governor romney and look at the people who weren't very strongly committed to casting their votes, the people who we call in the business leaners. someone's leaning for obama, but when they're asked, are you absolutely certain you're going to vote for obama, no. but they're leaning to obama. those votes are up for grabs. just as the leaners romney are up for grabs. it's more than just the people who say they're undecided. those leaners can be persuaded by debate performance. and let me tell you, look at governor romney's performance last week in education nation, at our station, at the clinton global initiative, he sounded good, he talked policy, he was on his game. anybody who thinks this is going to be a walk-over for the president is wrong. governor romney is very strong. and he has the advantage, when he gets into this, he looks and sounds very presidential, no ifs, ands or buts about it. >> robert traynham, there came a point late in the race where republican supporters really thought the thing

: looking at the polls, which despite everything even the conflict of the catholic church, president obama leads among catholic voters by 15%. conducted september 12th obviously eight the week after the events in benghazi >> it is a sterile conversation. romney was up about nine points one month ago. remember their reelection with governor walker? he won by seven. is a stale conversation. it is not that it would. 25 points and one month? >> obama every election campaign knows they are in trouble with catholics. individual calls are going out telling blatant bias about the president's position saying he does not support abortion. is the most extreme president on that issue this country has ever seen. lou: thank you for your voices. angry liberal bill more is added again. he hates republicans republicans, president obama we have that next. the president's confusing lack of transparency on the murder of our ambassador. comparing benghazi to watergate. author of the amateur joins us. and karl rove among our guest next week.

is the ground game for president barack obama and will their voters come out? having somebody day on a phone call as to how they're going to vote is irrelevant. the question is are they going to bring, are they going to come out, bring their family members out. are they going to bring their neighbors out? to the republicans stop all of this insessent whining about the polls. the real analysis from campaigns is going to be the first two weeks of early voting. they will get a sense of what the turnout is. go back to 2008. president obama's folks in 2008 actually looked in north carolina as a state they were losing. when they saw early turnout in 2008, they sent troops and money back into north carolina. that's how they won by 14,000 votes. how a poll says it's one thing, but it's what happens when they actually vote. that's what matters at the end of the day. >> but that early voting is why these polls do matter more. it's not just the only poll that counts on election day. early voting's already begun in iowa. as a result, these polls indicate realtime indicators of the direction things are g

president obama and governor romney plan to woo undecided voters days ahead of early voting in the buckeye state. arthel: president obama and governor mitt romney descending on the battleground state of ohio today, the president taking his message to college students at two state universities, while governor romney targets work-class voters in major metropolitan areas. less than a week before early voting begins in ohio where does each candidate stand. bob cusack is the managing editor for the hill. good to see you. which candidate would you like to analyze first you pick. >> president obama, he has the lead in ohio and that has picked up. i don't think that is surprising because last week was the worst week for the mitt romney campaign. can romney still win ohio? yes. he's going to have to change the dynamic a little bit. why is ohio so important, the last eleven presidential elections if you win ohio you win the presidency. that's why these two guys are fighting over the state and down the stretch they are going to be in ohio a lot. arthel: let me jump in with specifics here, bob. as you
of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates
are on the ground in these states. one ohio voter told "usa today" "obama is trying to get out the message. don't bother voting because it's over with. i got it." another republican voter on the ground said i think the polls are screwed and skewed. screwed and skewed. that's pretty rough language but leave it to rush limbaugh to take it one step further. >> polls now are just being used as another tool of voter suppression. the polls are an attempt to not reflect public opinion but to shape it. yours! depress the heck out of you. >> jennifer: suppress the vote? that's the republican's job. for more on the story i'm joined by mayor marc morial, president of the national urban league and a tremendous voice in the fight against voter suppression. mayor comes to us from new york. so great to have you inside "the war room" tonight. >> hey, great to be with you governor. congratulations on the show and congratulations on the strength of your voice. >> jennifer: i appreciate you saying that. it is when all of us blending our
. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points, nevada by 13. new hampshire and iowa 10 respectively. colorado by nine. all the battleground states are d
. a new quinnipiac university poll of likely voters shows president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 49-45. >> last night in denver, romney was endorsed by local football hero john elway. romney told the crowd that the debates will be crucial to the campaign. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. and the american people are going to have to make their choices as to what kind of america they want. >> jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in denver. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. this is romney's moment. the campaign knows the stakes here. of course, he's done this before. there were those 23 debates in the republican primaries, but this is different. it's one-on-one, and part of his debate prep has been working on that head-to-head match-up with senator rob portman playing president obama. on the campaign plane the other day, romney came back to talk to reporters and i asked him point-blank if he thinks he can win. he said look, the president has been trying to fool people

as they bla obama and those who think it's going well give the credit ito ama h kasic. so, you know, i do think that what john said about the auto industry is very important and also, women voters are really breaking for obama in ohio as they are elsewhere and in that way, paul an has been a huge dang factor to romney across the board, but seemingly in places like ohio, florida, and virginia in particular. >> which is not how they thoht this was going to play out. you know, the -- hugo, i want to mp, mari t ad from t romney tle of it. mitt romney straight to camera no suit jacket, let's take a look. >> president obama and i both care aut poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we suleacompassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> i think that's a song ad for mitt romney. the question is why he wasn't playing that t or three months ago. >> it is a good ad and you ri ths larger dynamic in ohio that actually is true nationally, too
to cause voters to look at this through a different lens. that's very important for him. >> president obama trying to lower expectations for wednesday. what he said at a campaign rally in las vegas yesterday. >> governor romney, highse's a man. but, what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and the source of security for hard-working americans. that's what people are looking for. that's what the american people deserve. >>> put up his poll for folks. does it hurt him going in as a front-runner? >> wrote a piece about how often the incumbent stumbled in the first debate. expect igs ations are right. a good debater, not a great debater. when the year started, up until the summer, republicans thought this was a referendum on the economy. voters dissatisfied with the direction of country inclined to fire the president. now republicans have essentially come to agree that is not going to be enough and they have to win the perspective choice going forward. this debate will be more about the next four years than the last four y
nearly half of voters in america think news organizations mostly defend president obama and attack governor mitt romney, about three times as many who say it is the other way around. what is up with this? juan williams, fox news political analyst. mary katharine ham, editor-at-large of hotair.com and fox news contributor. good morning to both of you on a friday. is there truth to this? >> i mean i think this is just a fact of life. as somebody right of center i deal with this a lot of the time. i don't think you can sort of make a bunch of excuses for it but i do think this isn't just in my imagination. if you look back to evan thomas who used to work in "newsweek" saying 2004, media might be worth five to 15 points to john kerry. that is election. bill: that is big deal when the country is kind of 50/50. you say fact of life. >> people go into media are mostly liberal. there are new options opening for conservatives and more voices are heard than ever before. we're farther along to correct things. bill: do you sit back and accept it? say that is just the way it is? >> no. these da
of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that t
